Well, it seems Nicolas Cage is a convert to comic book movies! When it was announced Cage and his 15-year-old son would be WRITING a comic for Virgin Comics (ENIGMA), wasn’t it just a tiny jump to guess he’d be ACTING in one? :

Virgin Comics, the publishing company bankrolled by Richard Branson, is adapting “The Sadhu” for the bigscreen as a starring vehicle for Nicolas Cage.

The script will be written by spiritual author and Virgin Comics co-founder Deepak Chopra.

“The Sadhu,” created and written by Chopra’s son, Gotham, chief creative officer of Virgin Comics, melds action with mythology from India. Cage will play James Jenson, a soldier who travels to India during colonial times and becomes a spiritual warrior.

Norm Golightly, Cage’s Saturn Pictures partner, will produce with Gotham Chopra and Virgin Comics CEO Sharad Devarajan.
